      I would put in the control module for lpfp. See what happens. Then try to find someone local with VCDS (put a post out on PA dubbers or any number of Facebook groups) or just buy it yourself, and do...

      Yes I would recommend that. You already have the part in-hand and it is a known failure-prone part with a recall on it so it is only logical to replace it first. The HP fuel sensor and the fuel...

      I respect that you see where I’m coming from and I see where you from even if I disagree, so we have a mutual understanding and you’ve explained that all well.

      Okay, regardless of how you explained it, the gist of it was that starting out gently form a stop you saw some noteworthy amount of boost straight away... that's not how it works. You have next to...

      This is semi-helpful. I can see the beginnings of what appears to be a healthy boost curve and control but I can't see the whole picture to confirm anything solid because you refuse to go above 3K...
